Top-Secret Yellow Cake

I was looking for a decent homemade yellow cake because I have a couple of ideas that I’d like to try with fillings, etc. I found one that seemed interesting because you make it entirely in a food processor. Turns out it was rather fun and simple to make! BUT: the recipe isn’t available on the web. I found it recipe in one of my cookbooks: “Moist and Mellow Yellow Cake for Birthdays or Cupcakes” in The Best of Better, Goldman and Huneault, 2002.

The Best of Better Baking has a recipe archive online, but they charge for recipes to view them (it’s not much – about $2.50 or through a $40 subscription per year). I also could not find one that has that exact title, which leads me to recommend your local library for more details on making this cake.

I’m not going to post the recipe in the cookbook our of respect to the original bakers, since I don’t have permission nor a link to guide you through the details. I do recommend checking it out, though. The crumb is fine, the color light, and it’s a rather versatile base for a variety of frostings.
